The waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. We had very well planned out meal. The Caprese Salad was shared between three people then I got the salmon with linguini and it was delicious. We are planning to go back tonight. I would recommend this restaurant

Every time we visit Montreal we have to stop at Wienstein and Gavino’s for dinner. I’ve been coming here for almost 18 years and love it. This visit on Sunday night was excellent as usual. We had a very friendly and attentive server who took great care of us. The food was delicious and so were the leftovers the next day. Can’t wait to come back again!

We ordered the Caesar salad and margarita pizza, both were very good. We thought the decor was great, both the bar and the dining areas had unique feels. Our server was attentive and met all our expectations. Definitely recommend this place!

There is something seriously lacking in both the quality of the food and the service here. Guests are treated poorly by wait staff who seemed apathetic at best. My twins were celebrating their 15th birthday here and do you think the waiter could manage to coordinate two pieces of cake with a sparkler in each? If you guessed no, you'd be right.

I order the pasta with shrimp in a lobster bisque sauce. I can guarantee that sauce never encountered a lobster. Definitely not word the $24 I paid. Very disappointing experience.

Always enjoy having a meal with friends and colleagues at W&G's. Service is always great. Food is great, and is in the centre of Crescent St. It is my default option when visiting Montreal for work and taking out clients.

Food was great. Nice atmosphere. Had potential and then the service ruined the whole experience. Finished my drink before the appetizer was done. No other drink Was offered. Mains were dropped off by someone other than our server, who never came over to ask how the meal was or to offer any additional beverages. We would have had 2-3 drinks each, would have considered dessert .... we had to flag him down to get the bill. Was dissapointing.

The bruschetta was burnt black, the pizza we ordered was overcooked and it was very burnt and my pasta was floating in oil, I go there very often and they always disappoint in the afternoon and do a better job at night

We came for a birthday celebration. The place was really loud, the service was slow and the food was mediocre (we had a variety of pasta and pizza). The only plus, the cocktails were quite nice!

We were on a small holiday for March break with our 5 year old daughter. The waiter was very attentive and the food was delicious. We didn't have anything spectacular just Pizza, fries and the meatballs for my daughter and everything we had was super delicious... and as simple as it was... it was super delicious The only complaint I had was how loud it was, but it's a busy spot and we went on a Saturday night. All in all I would definitely go back as the food was superb.

Food was very good but we were seated in the bar, for a date night and for the prices I would have preferred to have quieter dining room seating, especially because it was such a slow night. There were very few patrons downstairs but yet others were being seated upstairs. This was our first trip to Montreal and I don’t think we’d visit this restaurant again with so many other dining choices available. Listening to old rock while seated in the bar did not match our expectations of the place.

Great service and the food was outstanding. My wife had the lasagna and barely put a dent in it. I had the Chicken Parm and it was outstanding. Pasta was fresh. Salads were great and the bruschetta was outstanding.

WG was recommended to my husband and myself by the hotel concierge. We made reservations online for 8:45pm on a Saturday night and arrived around 8:40pm. At arrival when I stated we had a reservation for 8:45pm the man looked at his Ipad and said oh your table will be ready for 8:45pm not before. It was very rude they way he spoke to us but we let it pass and waited. We finally got seated at around 8:50pm to a small table tucked away in the corner. We then had to wait for the server for about 10mins before anyone came over to us. The server seemed rushed and not very helpful when we asked about vegetarian options. The food was just okay. Nothing amazing and nothing out of the normal.
The service was horrible. We felt rushed and not wanted. Will not be returning.

Food quality was excellent. The restaurant was very noisy, however (3 floors of seating) and still, there was music playing. Our server made a few errors and I think she just had a difficult time hearing us. No fault to find with the server and hostess/other staff. They were all very obliging. And again, the food was really, really delicious.

I have been here before when traveling to Montreal and have generally enjoyed but this time, our waiter was awful. He was slow, patronizing, and inattentive. Never refilled our water; never refilled our wine; never asked if we needed anything...it was like we were invisible. There are lots of great choices in Montreal - and while the food was good, the service does not make you want to back.
